The East Side - Reno Boulders

As the name indicates, this zones marks the Eastern perimeter of the reno boulders area. It loosely covers 2 canyons and the ridge top in between.

In this zone you will find some of the best moderates in the entire area along with good landings and solid stone. There's also a decent number of harder problems and FA's to be had for those who want to explore around.

Classics include the Hero Seam and the Traffic Jam Traverse, so named for their placement in full view of the general public. Here you will also find the Rhino Boulder with it's big horizontal Dyno and the towering big foot Boulder as seen in the beta photo to your right ...

You're right Brennan, this access point is indeed closer to this specific zone, but the guy who lives on the left with a boulder in his yard has been trouble when people park there and try to access the area through the notch ... I've parked at the end of the road that is left at the first roundabout and as long as you are out by dark I haven't had problems. But they close the gate at dusk... bottom line, access in all of the bouldering zones is a lil tricky, just gotta be cautious and respectful :) Nov 25, 2013

So if this is the area I think it is, I may have found a much better place to park, If you take a left on Mae Anne (instead of going up into Somerset) and then a right on LaSelle it will take you to a dirt a trail that extends from the road. Note that everything to the left of the trail is private property and everything to the right is the property of the City of Reno, NOT SOMERSET ASSOCIATION! So most of the boulders there are legit too but the ones close to the road are on Somerset property, anyways this parking spot should be much easier to access the area as well. Nov 13, 2013
